oopoomoo gonna get a new coat o’ paint!

For the past while, we’ve been tinkering behind the scenes with a face lift for oopoomoo. So this post is just a heads up! in case you wake one morning, groggily open your inbox, only to be shocked out of your pj’s by our fancy, new sporty style! Ok, maybe the changes won’t be so dramatic to you…you are, after all, a very sophisticated bunch! And it won’t be any time soon since we’re still bickering over fonts and frills at oopoomoo HQ. But consider yourself forewarned.

It might be time for an update at oopoomoo.com – ©Samantha Chrysanthou

In case you’re wondering, there are two main reasons for an update to the website.

1. Stephen, our designer and a creative in his own right, says it is past time. As in, waaaaaay past time. We want to make the site easier to navigate on mobile devices as well as continue to be informative and interesting.

2. Darwin and I have some cool new personal projects that we are launching this fall and the new site layout will allow you to follow along with those projects as they unfold. More about that to come!

So, that’s what might change around here in a few weeks. What won’t change? We might be a bit shinier, but you can still expect the same sharing of creative ideas, inspiring tips ‘n tricks and passion for photography that is oopoomoo!

Photographing the incredible beauty of natural things, filming quirky videos, trying new foods with unpronounceable names, curling up with a good book, sharing ideas on how to live lighter on the Earth...these are a few of my favourite things!

    Looking forward to the new view! Not that the old view was all that bad…

    This has to rank as one of my favourite sites and you have plans to make it better? Bring it on…

    BTW: I got an email today from a photography site here in Ottawa. One of the subjects was the use of filters in photography and why they still have a very big roll to play. The reference site used to explain why this is so… you, Darwin and your work with filters with links back to your site…

    “But I have post production software – I can do anything!”
    A simple filter can save you hours of time. Photographers like Darwin Wiggett suggest it’s virtually impossible to replicate filter effects in post production. More on filters by Darwin.

      Thanks for the support, Ron! Also, good to know there are still photogs out there who like filters :)

      I’ll be careful but my tools of choice are axes and sledge hammers followed by super glue and duct tape.
